Dr. Alexis Sams, PT, NKT is one of the most successful practitioners of dance medicine and holistic health care.
As the founder of AZ Dance Medicine Specialists she has worked with hundreds of clients and companies all over the world on injury prevention and performance enhancement, focusing on improving the health of non-muscular systems that often go overlooked in their influence on athletic performance.
Her treatment programs have helped performers especially when exercises, stretches, and strengthening programs DON'T WORK to manage symptoms or return quickly following injury.
Things didn't start out this way though. Dr. Alexis started her career in traditional outpatient physical therapy, the land of 2-3 visits a week for 4-6 weeks or more to see any changes. Focusing on hands on treatment and looking at other body systems to get patients better got her in trouble because it often resulted in patients getting better faster, with less visits, meaning less money to collect from insurance companies.
So she decided to branch out and create a space where her clients could truly heal effectively and efficiently, without worry of backlash about meeting budgets or providing unnecessary services just to increase a bottom line. In 2014, AZ Dance Medicine Specialists was born and in 2020 at the height of the Covid pandemic, she expanded to open Renatrition Health and Wellness which provides the same care to non-performers.
Today, Dr. Alexis runs a thriving clinic based in Phoenix, Arizona and continues to work with clients worldwide. She is committed to providing quality care with natural, non-surgical, and non-prescription solutions and fully resolve the causes that hold back clients from feeling and performing their best.
